I would ask first!

I think Christina Aguilera has an amazing voice and is quite a talent, but what she did to our national anthem at yesterday's superbowl was just not that impressive. I think that she got caught up in the moment and let her voice start doing vocal aerobics. She was too affected, along with her voice. The anthem in my opinion should be sung pretty straight forward with emotion and fairly conservatively. No one has come close to Whitney's some years ago at a superbowl. It was great ,but she also tracked it with the music before hand. If I were in charge of getting the talent for such a huge venue or happening, I would ask the artist what approach they were going to take to the song. Just sing it like it's supposed to be sung. Keep it simple, oh please keep it simple but strong just like our country. Oh yeah and make sure you know the lyrics backward and forward!
